Hillel North is Maryland Hillel’s community for students living on North Campus and underclassmen living off campus. Shabbat dinners, social programs, and holiday events are just some of the Hillel North initiatives you can look forward to this year! We want to connect North Campus Jews with each other and with all that Maryland Hillel has to offer across campus.
